|Working on the dinghy engine|
That night Val went into her mechanic mode. She is totally in her element tinkering with stuff, and she LOVES it. Being raised by a mechanic, she is comfortable tearing stuff down and building them up. Yeah for me as I suck at such things. I know all the theory and can explain every law of physics involved, but getting the mechanic parts together, no f-n way. Go VAL!

We have no idea what had hung up the propeller to cause the shear pin to shear. It worked fine to the park dinghy dock. Another crazy ocean life mystery.
